    I sure hope this gets a HTF Official Review at some point. The paucity of posts here about the movie and the disc is indicative of the lack of impact the movie made at the BO but I find this an excellent action flick and a faithful comic book adaptation. On the technical side, the 3D on this disc is top notch with the constrained environment allowing many instances of depth due to corridors, pipes, door frames etc making for a dense visual background which allows the 3D to be quite effective. Not to mention the Slo-mo sequences depicting the drug use. Finally this disc is an audio marvel with fantastic channel separation and layering of sound effects. A demo disc and a worthy movie to watch to boot. It's on sale right now for under $15 online and in brick and mortars. This is a hidden gem waiting to be experienced.

    I was on the docket to review it, but despite promises from the PR firm handling the review discs, it never arrived.
